The search feature of Team Foundation Server (TFS) uses Elasticsearch, which depends on Java SE. Until now, Oracle Java SE was the supported version of JRE for TFS search. With the change in Oracle licensing terms, there will be no more "free public Java updates" and users are required to buy a subscription to continue to get JRE updates for commercial use.
